by Rainier on Nov. 20, 2020 @ 1:15 a.m. PST

Entering a whimsical and bizarre land through a mysterious theatre, Balan Wonderworld is an action-platformer where you take on the role of Leo and Emma as they embark on an adventure like no other.

As players explore the fantastical land of Wonderworld, they’ll be guided by an enigmatic maestro named Balan, who will help players restore balance to the world by clearing Wonderworld of Negati, physical manifestations of worry and other negative emotions.

To accomplish this, players will jump, climb, fly, smash, and more, as they explore a multitude of unique environments within Wonderworld, collecting over 80 unique costumes to assist on the journey. The costumes change Leo’s and Emma’s appearances, granting them a wide array of fantastical powers to overcome obstacles, from the Pumpkin Puncher outfit that lets players smash through enemies or obstacles blocking pathways to the Air Cat costume that allows players to walk in mid-air for a certain amount of time.

The possibilities are endless as you bash your enemies, walk in the air, freeze time and manipulate all kinds of objects with the costumes you collect!
